Well, I have totally been neglecting this blog, but I wanted to let you know that we survived our trip to Charleston! We actually had a great time and little Em was an A+ traveler! Now, don’t get me wrong….I have no intention of taking her on another plane ride any time soon. I don’t want to press my luck.
I will say – bringing our moms on this trip – best.idea.ever. Also, I think I have shared this little gem with my Tulsa readers, but if you fly American to Dallas, you can upgrade to first class for $45. It pays for itself if you check more than one bag as checking two bags costs $60, but if you fly first class you pay $45 and can check up to 3 bags. Obviously, a win-win. Now, this first class isn’t very glam, but worth it when you are traveling with a baby! (Though I am certain everyone else in first class was holding their breath waiting for our sweet four month old to burst into tears and ruin their lovely morning.)
The only picture I got of us on the plane ride there.
We ate a lot. I, of course, had to try a cupcake – the caramel apple!
We did several plantation and home tours and the weather was amazing.
Sweet girl spent a lot of time in the Bjorn and she just loved being able to look around. She was even able to sneak in a nap or two.
Happy girl ready for a big day!
One of the things we enjoyed most is taking a carriage ride of Charleston.
All in all, a really great trip! We are now trying to decide whether to go to a wedding in April with the baby. Just thinking about it makes me tired!
